About this design:

Another mish mosh of beads all in the name of good health, good luck, and good friendship. I have an arrangement of faceted amethyst, which is said to increase vivid dreams, relieve depression, promote calm, serenity, and spirituality. Helps with addiction and stress. I have Chinese Turquoise which is another healing stone said to attract friendships, luck, and happiness. Release shame and guilt. Tiger's Eye - clear thinking, helps in manifesting will, courage, and confidence. Jasper - calms a troubled mind. Helps with digestive problems and other ills. Red Coral to ward off bad thoughts from others and promotes general well-being. With all these stones how can one go wrong?


Chinese turquoise, jasper, Amethyst, Red Coral, Tiger's Eye, Sterling Silver, worn leather cording, beading thread, wire, a pretty button.

    I have a question for you…How do you keep your beads tight on the leather. I have noticed that my beads sometimes go loose or the stitching is loose. Do you put it together on a clip board or something else? Thank you for any help you can give.

Add your thoughts!
